Housed in a sleek, modern building, Tea Story proffers more than 100 loose-leaf teas and employs fresh, real fruits, vegetables, and dairy products in crafting a menu of sweet and savoury waffle creations. Sweets-seekers scale the Death for Chocolate waffle’s peaks of nutella, chocolate ice cream, and fudge or let forks synchronized-swim in caramel with the seasonal Dragon Got Sweet’s dragon fruit, strawberry, and kiwi medley. Each dessert waffle, shaped like a rectangular boat to keep vitamin-rich ingredients safe from scurvy pirates, can pair with steaming pots of genmaicha, jasmine, or pear and plum green tea.
For the savoury waffle meal, pairs dig beneath a waffle shell to reach the layers of roasted smoked beef, cheddar, salsa, and chipotle sauce in the Mexican style, or the chicken breast, mozzarella, and tzatziki sauce of the cilantro chicken. Baristas partner waffle sandwiches with a garden or Caesar side salad and bubble teas such as the passion fruit smoothie without the weekly trust fall exercises required in most partnerships. Overflowing with meat, vegetarian, or vegan ingredients, the doughy-pocketed vessels sail to tables under light from flower blossom-shaped chandeliers. Diners sit at mid-20th-century signature furniture, such as pristine cup-shaped white chairs and glass-topped coffee tables.
Tea Story is a sophisticated shop that got its start on Osborne Street. There, baristas brew more than 120 varieties of loose-leaf tea, including healthy green tea, traditional black tea, fragrant rooibos tea, all-natural herbal tea, ethnic oolong tea, fruit tea, and floral teas that bloom as they steep. Specialty ice lattes, fruit and vegetable smoothies, and bubble teas are also on the menu. Tea Story's original location is sleek and stylish with midcentury furniture and an ultramodern chandelier.
